Full description

Greeves, T. A. P., 1976, Shaden Moor settlement (Worksheet). SDV152969.

Shaden Moor. At least two prehistoric hut circles close to the western end of a reave which is a continuation of main Saddlesborough Reave and which has a modern field boundary built on top of most of its length west of the Beatland Corner to Cadover Bridge Road.

Butler, J., 1994, Dartmoor Atlas of Antiquities: Volume Three - The South-West, 98-99, Map 48 (Monograph). SDV137656.

Settlement at Shaden Moor consisting of the scanty remains of three hut circles of 5.0 metres to 8.5 metres diameter associated with some small enclosures alongside a boundary which would have originally been part of a reave (continuing the Saddlesborough reave), although it has been replaced by a substantial field wall.
